Loreen Western, creator and owner of See Dreams Studio, creates vibrant, original hand painted silk scarves. Using rich, saturated colors, Loreen produces stunning wearable art with luminous qualities. Inspired by the elements of nature, the designs and color themes of her silk painting reflect aspects of the sky, clouds, water, flowers, leaves, trees and landscapes.
Known throughout her art career as a colorist, Loreen has a real passion for working with the interplay of hues whether on silk, in watercolor paintings, in drawings, or with fibers. Loreen studied drawing and painting earning a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Studio Arts from the University of Minnesota. Her professional work experience in corporate graphic design, technical illustration, drafting, art shows, administration and management influences Loreen’s approach as well.
For more than twenty years, Loreen has explored color and silk painting producing and selling her beautiful hand painted silk scarves at art shows, galleries and stores. Currently her unique silk scarves are also available at The Delaplaine Arts Center Gift Gallery, Frederick, Maryland.
